Predictors of survival outcomes in sinonasal squamous cell carcinoma: an analysis of the National Cancer Database
This study used the National Cancer Data Base (NCDB) to examine treatment outcomes for patients diagnosed with SNSCC.MethodsThe NCDB (2004 ‐2015) was queried for cases with SNSCC. Multivariate hazard regression modeling was used to identify significant predictors of 24‐month and 60‐month overall survival (OS) including treatment modality.ResultsA total of 3516 patients with SNSCC met inclusion criteria, including 1750 patients (49.8%) treated with surgery ± adjuvant therapy, 1352 (38.5%) treated with definitive radiotherapy (RT) or CRT, 300 (8.5%) who underwent IC followed by definitive CRT, and 114 (3.2%) who...

Inflammation ‐driven vascular dysregulation in chronic rhinosinusitis
BackgroundAltered neovascularity is typically observed in chronic inflammatory diseases with overlapping pathophysiology to that observed in chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). However, characterization of these inflammatory ‐induced vascular‐mediated changes in CRS is limited. Understanding the underlying vascular changes in CRS will allow for strategic design and development of new drug‐delivery technologies that exploit vascular permeability for increased extravasation into the target sinonasal tissues.MethodsPatients with CRS with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) and without nasal polyps (CRSsNP) and non ‐CRS controls were enro...

The association of frailty with olfactory and gustatory dysfunction in older adults: a nationally representative sample
BackgroundOlfaction and gustation are associated with age ‐related decline. Deficits in these chemosenses have been associated with significant comorbidities. Meanwhile, frailty, defined as a reduced physiological reserve, is well correlated with mortality and worse health outcomes. We sought to analyze a nationally representative patient population to d etermine the association between chemosensory dysfunction and frailty.MethodsCross ‐sectional analysis of U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2013‐2014 was performed, using multivariate logistic regression to examine the association between...

International Consensus Statement: Spontaneous Cerebrospinal Fluid Rhinorrhea
ConclusionWe present fifty consensus statements on the diagnosis, investigation, and management of spontaneous CSF rhinorrhea based on the currently available evidence and expert opinion. Although by no means comprehensive and final, we believe they can contribute to the standardization of clinical practice. Early diagnosis, prompt surgical closure of the defect, assesment for and treatment of potentially co ‐existing idiopathic intracranial hypertension in a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach are essential in order to successfully manage spontaneous CSF rhinorrhea, reduce associated morbidity and prevent recurrenc...

Solitary chemosensory cells are innervated by trigeminal nerve endings and autoregulated by cholinergic receptors
ConclusionSCCs are innervated by trigeminal nerve endings in healthy turbinate tissue but not in NPs. SCCs express ACh receptors as well as choline acetyltransferase and, in the setting of a type 2 inflammatory environment, denervated SCCs dramatically expand with nicotinic stimulation.
